Munching Sheep

I have to finish five of these little paintings by Friday for our local art club’s 50th anniversay party.  This is the third.  I did it with tube acrylics which I’ve had for a while but haven’t used much.  And when I tried them again I found that I didn’t much like them.  They’re really too thick to work well with my painting style.  So I’m bequeathing them to a friend who wants to try acrylic.  I have plenty of fluid acrylics that are just fine for me!

I always do enjoy painting the little landscapes.  Adding the grass strands to the sheep’s mouth was an afterthought, and I thought it improved the painting by adding a little personality and a tiny touch of “a story.”  I hope whoever gets this painting will enjoy it.
